While others do "penguin" things, Chilly da Vinci--self-declared inventor penguin, builds machines that don't work...yet!
When Chilly's latest invention, the Good Bird crashes into the penguins' home iceberg, it separates a chunk of ice and sends the penguins drifting out to sea. Can Chilly invent a machine to get them home before a hungry orca nibbles the ice away?
The book includes an author's note about the Leonardo da Vinci and the inventor's early failures.
